Home Forward Executive Director Michael Buonocore recently announced his intention to resign from the housing authority effective February 2022 in order to focus on creative pursuits, including book writing and podcasting.
Michael became Home Forward’s executive director in October 2014 after serving as the agency’s deputy executive director, responsible for the property management, rent assistance, and real estate development departments. He began his Home Forward career in 2001 as a resident services manager, going on to direct policy and planning, where he was the principal architect of the agency's strategic directions and planning. He also designed Home Forward's innovative rent reform program.
Michael’s expertise in and passion for serving low-income families will be greatly missed at CLPHA, and we wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors. CLPHA will reflect more deeply on Michael’s contributions to the public housing industry in a future CLPHA newsletter.
